Based in science and rooted in local communities, our international programs deliver immediate and lasting impacts for animals, people, and the planet. We ensure each program is economically viable, globally scalable, and feasible in the long term.
Our rescue teams save wildlife that have been orphaned, injured, displaced or confiscated in illegal trade. We rescue animals one by one, anytime, anywhere. And we work to rehabilitate rescued animals and return them to the wild.
Our ocean is in crisis. Marine life and habitats face more threats today than ever before. Our team is working to protect the place they call home. By making the ocean safer and healthier, we can save lives and livelihoods.
As disasters around the world increase in intensity and frequency, IFAW’s Disaster Response & Risk Reduction team is busy working to save animal lives, mitigate impact, assist vulnerable communities and provide resilience-building resources.
